    Dan, this is a really impressive piece of work. I especially was impressed with the precision of your edge work -- around the steps and rails. The weathering really ups the reality factor. What was your technique?

    Outstanding paint work and photography. Thank you. I wish I was that talented. Do you paint the whole locomotive without taking her apart? It sure looks that way. Doesn't the paint affect the ability for the engine to run after that? As you might guess, I'm a new at this. Guess I need to go to painting and computer school so I can accomplish something.

    Dan I can't believe in all the time I have been here this is the first time I'm seeing this thread . The loci looks absolutely stunning and I was wondering if you could post a side by side shot of the before and after? Thanks Pat
